Thoughts on Helm Rock
Helm Rock heads to Chelmsford this evening to line up in the 8.00pm contest, Richard Kingscote takes the ride.
Helm Rock put together a great record on the all weather this year. Therefore we are keen to aim him at the all weather finals so this is the first step of qualifying. He’s had a short break since champions day and his main aim is the valuable race at Newcastle on New Year’s Day.
Desert Order is the dark horse here, a talented two year old he returns from a long absence and it’s very possible the full extent of his ability hasn’t been seen on the track. Tacarib Bay hasn’t got the most consistent profile but has plenty of ability and won a Listed race over 6 furlongs last time, he does stay a mile.
Helm Rock runs for owners Capture The Moment VII and will be led up by James Pulley who cares for him daily at home.
